For his series Flatland II, Turkish artist Aydin Büyüktaş has created dizzying and distorted views of American landscapes. It took the photographer two months to scout and plan for the locations, then another month and 10,000 miles of travelling across the USA to capture the shots. Aydin captured 18-20 images for each shot, then stitched them together to create collages that stretch into the sky and fold onto themselves.

Images and art by Italian photographer Giuseppe Colarusso are quite tantalizing, sometimes creating a surreal world, and often playing with the idea of something that’s possible, but really improbable. Starting off on the path of creativity and off the usual, Giuseppe got his first photograph by creating a pinhole camera out of a shoebox. He used a photographic paper at the bottom of the box and a hole at the center of the lid to get the camera into action.
Chinese photographer Zhang Bojun has a nice collection of plaid designs in his portfolio. These “designs” are digital manipulations created from overhead images from the vast sea of humans that are Beijing’s streets. The artist photographs the swarms of people that throng the streets of Beijing and repeats observed patterns, while reducing the actual image to a bird’s eye view. These images take the form of interlocking designs that are usually seen in plaid fabric.
